04/10/2016 - Wilson Sons Logística expands operations in Santo André

Wilson Sons Logística, a Wilson Sons Group company that offers integrated solutions for the international and domestic trade chains, involving customs terminals and distribution centers, has tripled the area of its Distribution Center in Santo André. The unit recently incorporated part of the warehouse adjacent to its facilities, increasing its total space dedicated to domestic storage from 5 thousand m² to 17 thousand m².

The distribution center has a strategic and privileged location next to Santo André EADI, the largest dry port in São Paulo, and was designed to offer, in a single site, complete integrated chain services, with solutions for clients that carry out import and export operations at the Customs Terminal.

According to the Wilson Sons Logística's executive director Thomas Rittscher III, the expansion will further strengthen São Paulo Regional Platform. For him, when choosing the solutions offered by the company, customers gain time and agility. "One of the main benefits for our clients is the reduction of around 60% in logistics costs, by eliminating the need to transfer cargo to another warehouse or Distribution Center after customs clearance, in addition to concentrating logistical operations on a single location, starting in the entry of the goods in Brazil," said the executive. Rittscher still highlights the reduction of lead time (period between the beginning of an activity and its end) as a great differential, making the product available within 24 hours after nationalization.

With the new space, which is already in operation after undergoing adjustments in its infrastructure, Wilson Sons Logística also has two new clients: Cannon and Johnsons Controls. Santo André DC offers services as general or branch storage, exclusive rooms/offices for clients, dedicated operations, customized services (labeling and assembly of kits) and transfer or distribution transport for end clients in the entire national territory.
